David West played a season-high 20 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday with six points, three rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal.
He started the third quarter for Zaza Pachulia (shoulder), who is expected to miss time. Coach Steve Kerr usually doesn't like to extend West's minutes, and he did only play 13 minutes in the Monday game Zaza missed. His fantasy value probably won't change much unless he was already on your short list in deep leagues. Dec 7 - 12:42 AM

David West started the third quarter for Zaza Pachilia (shoulder) on Wednesday.

Pachulia is almost certainly out as he deals with his soreness. There's not much of an add to make here unless you're in a super deep league. This helps Jordan Bell, who was quiet in the first half.
Dec 6 - 9:22 PM

David West (knee) scored two points with three rebounds, four assists, one steals and one block in 11 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

He's probably hearing Jordan Bell's footsteps and Bell checked in ahead of him today. West may be a DNP-CD soon because Bell has been marvelous.
Dec 1 - 9:28 PM

David West (knee) is available to play Friday vs. Orlando.

Coach Steve Kerr has talked about finding more minutes for Jordan Bell, so it will be interesting to see who gets the nod tonight. The Warriors have a back-to-back set on Sunday and Monday, so we'd expect West to sit out at least one of those.
Dec 1 - 1:52 PM

David West (knee) is probable to face the Magic on Friday.

With West now likely to be available, it'll be interesting to see if the team goes to Jordan Bell. West doesn't have much value in fantasy while Bell is worth a stash, especially with him likely to be in the rotation.
Nov 30 - 8:22 PM

David West (left lateral knee soreness) is questionable for Friday night's game at Orlando.

He did not play on Wednesday and that allowed fantasy per-minute stud Jordan Bell to get minutes. If West is out again, Bell could be in the rotation and becomes a DFS stream. He's only played 12 minutes next to both Draymond Green and Kevin Durant, but the Warriors have crushed with a +58.4 net rating.
Nov 30 - 3:36 PM

David West (left lateral knee soreness) will not play Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

This seems like more of a rest day for the 14-year veteran, so we'd expect him back on the court for Friday's game in Orlando. With West out, Jordan Bell will have the opportunity to see an uptick in minutes, but it'll be tough for him to make a meaningful impact in most leagues with Draymond Green healthy and Kevin Durant (ankle) expected back tonight.
Nov 29 - 2:09 PM

David West made 7-of-8 from the field for 14 points against the 76ers on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 13 minutes.

He's going to go down as one of the best mid-range shooting bigs of all time and that worked for him again today. West has played well lately, making 77.3 percent from the field over his last five with averages of 7.6 points, 4.8 boards, 2.4 assists and 0.6 steals. We may not see Jordan Bell for a little while with West playing like this. He's not really worth adding unless you're streaming on Sunday against the Nets.
Nov 18 - 11:29 PM

David West racked up 10 points, four rebounds, three assists and one block in just 13 minutes of action on Wednesday.

West hit 4-of-5 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs and he's been ridiculously efficient shooting the ball this season. His early-season fantasy value was also inflated by a stretch of six games during which he averaged 2.3 blocks in 12.3 minutes per game, which was completely unrealistic. He belongs on the waiver wire.
Nov 9 - 1:37 AM

David West (rest) will not suit up for Monday's game against Miami.

With West on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for guys like Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. West should be back in action for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.
Nov 6 - 4:23 PM

David West stepped up with 16 points on 8-of-9 shooting in 15 minutes off the bench Friday against the visiting Wizards.

West and Kevon Looney helped fill the void after Draymond Green was ejected for a fracas with Bradley Beal. He entered the game with a total of 16 points over the past three outings, so don't get overly excited about this performance. He'll be back to a lesser role in Sunday's game against the Pistons. He remains useful only in deeper fantasy leagues despite the sharpshooting in this one.
Oct 28 - 1:55 AM

David West was active in nine minutes vs. Memphis on Saturday, scoring four points with six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

West is looking to double-up on championship rings with the Warriors this season, but his real-world value far exceeds his fantasy value. The 14-year veteran has been on a steady decline, fantasy-wise, since a stellar 2012-13 campaign.
Oct 21 - 11:13 PM

David West scored eight points and grabbed seven rebounds in 13 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

West finishes the preseason with averages of 5.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists. West is an important locker room leader and enforcer for Golden State, but will have very limited fantasy value in what will be his final NBA season.
Oct 14 - 11:31 AM's David Aldridge is reporting that David West will re-sign with the Golden State Warriors for one year.

This will be West's final season in the NBA, as he plans to retire following the 2017-18 campaign. West is a strong voice in the Warriors locker room and provided some quality minutes in the postseason, but doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues. He averaged just 4.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in 12.6 minutes last season.
Jul 1 - 12:35 PM

Damian Jones said David West has helped him the most this season.

It's fair to say nobody was happier than West about winning a title. West said he doesn't know if he is going to retire, but he showed he can still play 10-15 minutes as a four or five man. He won't have fantasy value, of course.
